Red Light, Green Light
By: the editors of Wondertime magazine
How to Play:
1. Choose one player to be Red Light. He should stand about 25 yards from the other players, with his back turned to them.
2. The other players should be lined up shoulder to shoulder behind him. Their goal is to try to get close enough to tap Red Light on the shoulder, but they can move only when he says, "Green Light."
3. To begin play, Red Light closes his eyes and yells, "Green Light!" Players then run at top speed toward him until he yells, "Red Light!" and turns around as fast as he can. The instant the other players hear "Red Light!" they must stop running. Anyone Red Light sees still moving when he turns around must return to the starting line.
4. This sequence is repeated until a player gets close enough to tap Red Light on the shoulder when his back is turned. This player wins and becomes the next Red Light.
